Protect Uranium Extractors while they collect valuable nuclear material.

Event: Uranium Fever is a public event in Fallout 76.

Quick walkthrough

  • Speak to the Blackwater Auto-Foreman.
  • Initiate the extraction process.
  • Protect the extractors as they extract uranium.

Detailed walkthrough

The surface area and mine is occupied by mole miners. Approach and listen to the Blackwater Auto-Foreman Protectron at the entrance to the mine. The player character may need to wait for the quest to become accessible; if it is not available, the foreman will say, "System is currently OFFLINE" and urge the player character to "return later." Once welcomed by the foreman, enter the mine and navigate through the rooms to the right side of the tracks, using the terminal on the wall to initiate the extraction process. Three of the units, Extractors Alpha, Bravo and Charlie, will begin emitting a green, highly-radioactive gas generated by the uranium and will be attacked by mole miners, glowing or a stronger variant. Occasionally, if the system voice mentions "terminated management personnel," a legendary mole miner will spawn. Maintain repairs as the attacks continue, as a disabled extractor will require 10 units of steel to be repaired and returned to service; once the bar is filled, or the timer expires, the extraction process will complete, as will the quest. The more the bar is filled when the timer for the quest expires, the more rewards will be given, indicated when the system voice says, "Adequate uranium volume extracted and processed. Output quantity increased."
